that for 10 years when dianne feinstein passed the ban in '94. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i think that is phony piece of legislation and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it is all built on lies that have been found out. heather: gun control advocates equally adamant about their position. here's democratic senator charles schumer. >> he was so extreme and so tone deaf, not even saying that guns had any part of the problem. that he actually probably helped us as we tried to pass sensible gun legislation in the congress. now he says, he says, the only, the best way, the way, here is what he says. the way to stop a bad guy with guns is have a good guy with guns. why don't we stop the bad guy from getting the gun in the first place? that is the more logical thing to do, rather than wait for a shootout in our schools. god forbid. heather: president obama is vowing to push for a some form of unabout control in the new year. we will have more on this debate in the next hour. gregg: as residents of newtown, connecticut, still struggle w

had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '94. it was on the books. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i know this town wants to argue about gun control. i don't think it's what will work. >> adam lanza may not have been able to shoot as many people if he didn't have such ammunition? >> i don't buy that argument. >> it's not possible? >> so many different ways he could have done it. endless amount of ways a monster can do it. >> joining me now is one mom who is taking on the nra, shannon watts, founder of one million moms for gun control. a big welcome to you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> i know you've studied this issue in depth. so i knew you were listening there to wayne lapierre. what's your reaction to what he just said? >> well, i think a commonsense question is why are we asking someone who profits from the proliferation of guns and ammunition to give us advice on how we can be better protected from guns? it's just not common sense. it's a little bit like the fox guarding the henhouse. as mom, my job i

and merry christmas. >> dave:. and let's start with dianne feinstein and the letter, they're saying enhanced interrogation techniques did not lead to the capture of usama bin laden? do they stretch the truth. i haven't seen the film and let's face it it's not a documentary, it's a movie. unfortunately, with all due respect to the senators, i think they're probably a too little too late that the film is about to be released, they're not going to change anything, they probably should have been more when the makers given high level access and the administration working closely with them. a too little too late. >> dave: you brought up a good point. the obama administration worked closely with producers, so if there were inaccuracies taken by the hollywood studios and katherine bigelow and company, isn't it based on actual conversations with government officials? >> well, that's what -- the perception would be, because they were working very closely with them and what's interesting, you bring up a good point, where is the administration? i mean, they obviously vigorously came out against that an
